I agree with Claire. He needs more respect!!! -stars petition- He's also just like Bill and Tom. A Human Being. I'm pretty sure Bill and Tom don't like the way the fans treat Andi. And if the fans were true fans, then they would respect Tokio Hotel's loved ones. AKA. Andi.
P.S. Claire. I don't mean to sound dumb, but who is Nathalie? I've heard she's their make-up artist. But I'm not too sure :-\
Claire- Andreas has the red universal bag I told you about in one of the pics.
anyway I agree with Claire and she knows that I guess. I was a witness to very rude behaviour towards andreas and strongly disliked it. he seems to be unfriendly sometimes but I think it seems just fair for the way he is treated...
anyway...andreas and Bill. I could swear they swap clothes ;D
@summer: He wouldn't give you an autograph, if you asked him When people asks him if he is that Andreas, he denies it. Doesn't give photos or autographs, either. I think that's good, personally, because he knows that he's only 'famous' or whatever because of the twins; he hasn't become famous himself. So he made a couple of friends, and they became rockstars, it happens, hah.
(Lol, Now I sound stalkerish... I'm not All the info is smuggled from THI.)
Oh, and apparently he has brown hair now. According to someone over there, too... Eek, I hope it's false!
I'm a little late on this, but I hate the way Andreas is treated. I remember seeing a video on You Tube of him talking to someone at PDP, and in the comments someone asked what he had said. She replied that he'd asked her politely not to film him. And her response to that was to put it on You Tube!!! How frigging disrespectful is that?!
I could understand the nastiness if Andreas used his connection to the band to 'lord it' over people, but he never does. He keeps quietly in the background. He's just there because he wants to be with his best friends. Fans should be happy that the twins still care about their best friend and want to take him with them! Everyone is always talking about how sweet they are - why hate a genuine display of that sweetness? I love that they want Andreas around.
As for the 'pushing' incident at the airport. . .
For Andreas, I'm sure his only concern is that all of the guys get safely to where they are going. This is the issue I have with fans. It's one thing to love them, queue for hours etc. But I hate it when they are mobbed or grabbed. It's so rude! As is stopping them from getting where they are going! For example - needing a police escort to leave your own home?! Just sick.
How long do you think it would take them to get out of an airport if they stopped to politely ask each person to move?! Lol.
Andreas ... yes, a sweetie and Bill and Tom love him, so he deserves respect - as Claire rightly said. As does anyone they care about.
I've heard before that fans complained Andreas would be rude etc but honestly, I don't think that he is most times and if he is, he probably has to be to get the message across (Plus, sometimes we're all just annoyed.). Look at what politeness gets him... another video on youtube. Gah. How annoying and disrespectful. I think he's just direct. E.g. his profile message on the German forum says something along the line of I don't have a myspace/facebook etc etc Don't fall for the p*ss take. Why shouldn't he be direct? People might perceive it as being rude but it doesn't have to be. He doesn't have to be nice to the fans just for the sake of it and like Liz says it only shows that he doesn't use his famous friends for his personal advantages and that he doesn't brag about it, makes him only more genuine. I'm pretty sure that's why he is such a good friend to them. They obviously trust him to be honest (and direct) to them and they must appreciate this as it probably helps them with being "normal" and staying leveled.
A few months back I stumbled across one of the fake myspace profiles for him and the profile song was 1, 2, 3, 4 by Bela B (drummer and vocalist of Die Ärzte). I thought that was hilarious. The lyrics start with him being at a bar late at night, just to have a drink and to clear his head not for talking and then suddenly something tapped him on the shoulder and grinned its way into his world, ordered two drinks and called him Dirk (his real name). It's followed by the chorus (which changes lyrics throughout the song) going: 1. you're making a mistake here, 2. for you it's still "Bela", 3. I'm not drinking with just anyone and 4. I don't want to talk to you. I thought it was quite fitting to use that song. Ha ha.
He doesn't give autographs? Oh well i understand I mean people act as if he is friends with the twins because of their fame... Which isn't the case at all . He was friends with them before they became famous.
Sorry if there are any spelling mistakes, its just my fingers are numb because i've been out with the horses all day :/ Aaaannnyway, I Think he should be treat better than he is now. Some People are just jelous. >:[ :-))
